Hi, Folks!
Please keep this in mind, when the Moon is VOC this week, she isn’t fooling around! Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, she remains VOC ALL DAY LONG!! Along with Mercury & Mars Retrograde, these are days to keep a low profile and not seek accomplishment. This would be a great week to be on vacation or otherwise resting!

LEAVE YOUR CREDIT CARDS AT HOME

Monday, August 6, 2018:

Get your day started early on Monday because we soon have three full days of no Moon activity at all! The Moon is VOC* all day long on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Your best bet will be to take advantage of the days when the Moon will support activity and accomplishment! Monday brings the lighthearted, friendly energy of the talkative Gemini Moon to the table, allowing easy engagement with others.

Monday evening, Venus happily leaves stuffy Virgo behind to enter agreeable Venus ruled Libra. Venus represents love and beauty and, while in Virgo, she may have been overly critical and a bit prickly. In Libra, she has an easier time relaxing into the moment and finding beauty and value in cooperation and diplomacy. You may notice yourself and others more interested in compromise, diplomacy, and romance.

With the Sun forming a challenging square to Jupiter, you may feel a pull towards overindulgence. This may be a good day to leave your credit cards at home and pay careful attention to any promises you make. Don’t give away the store.

 

 

FRUSTRATION AND EPIPHANIES

Tuesday, August 7, 2018:

The generally talkative Gemini Moon makes no aspects today suggesting some frustration as all that you want to say may fall on deaf ears.

As Uranus turns retrograde, it focuses its attention bringing further frustration and impatience to the areas of life that don’t seem to be moving forward as quickly as you would like. A sense of limits and restrictions bubble under the surface. Practice mindfulness, patience, and allow epiphanies to surface. You may be surprised by an unexpected occurrence or communication.

At 8:32 PM EDT, Venus in Libra forms a lovely trine to Mars in Aquarius. This opens communication, ideas, and the movement of energies between folks. Spend time in public to enjoy. Follow up over the coming days on any possibilities that show up now.

The Gemini Moon is VOC* from 3:55 AM EDT until she enters Cancer after midnight – ALL DAY. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

SWEETNESS REPLACES RESTRICTION

Wednesday, August 8, 2018:

Wednesday morning brings us the Moon in protective, loving Cancer. The Cancer Moon wants to create security within the context of family, biological or chosen. However, difficulties arise with an opposition between the Moon and Saturn just as you begin the day. This suggests a difficult challenge in getting your needs met. Others may simply not see you as clearly as you would like to be seen. You may feel unloved and restricted in showing love.

By bedtime, things feel better as Mercury joins the Sun, providing clarity where it has most recently been missing.

This is followed by a Grand Water Trine formed between the Moon, Jupiter, and Neptune. This soothes all the challenge of the day and offers a great time for sweet late night lovemaking or at the very least delightfully beautiful dreams.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead?

SOBER REALITIES

Thursday, August 9, 2018:

Thursday offers a day for emotional rest as we settle down following an early morning confrontation between the Cancer Moon and powerfully disruptive Pluto.

Following a rocky start to the day, try to make an effort to manage your emotions with rest. Allow what was said or done over the breakfast table to be released; don’t hold onto negativity. Mistakes happen and we all respond in ways that are inappropriate at times. Forgive others as you hope others will do the same.
It is important to approach the end of the day with a clean slate if possible.

At 9:33 PM EDT, Venus squares Saturn. This evening and Friday will likely present challenges to your relationships with others. You may feel sobered by the realities of your situation regarding love, relationships, and finances. Perhaps, it is a good time to schedule a serious clarifying conversation with a loved one. Don’t implement the conversation now in the Dark phase of the Moon but begin to accumulate your talking points and clearly approach the situation over the coming days.

The Cancer Moon is VOC* From 7:20 AM EDT until shortly after midnight (ALL DAY) when she enters Leo. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

WHAT DO YOU NEED?

Friday, August 10, 2018:

It may take a bit of effort to get out from under some uncomfortable dreams in the night but moving forward, they will fade into the distance. On Friday morning, the Moon will be in lighthearted, playful Leo. However, it is the Dark phase of the Moon with the New Moon coming on Saturday, this brings a sense of waiting and endings, not so lighthearted after all.

You can expect Thursday’s square between Venus and Saturn to continue into your experience on Friday. You may find yourself dissatisfied with your partner, friends, or your paycheck. If the things that bring value and meaning to your life seem to not fit you properly at this time, examine what needs to be released in order to bring new growth in the coming months.

Do you need to have a clarifying conversation with your partner, lover, or friend? Do you need to ask for a raise? Don’t take action now but get clear on what needs to change to bring more satisfaction and love into your heart.

GENEROSITY AND OPEN HEARTED LOVE

Saturday, August 11, 2018:

Saturday brings the final eclipse of the season. This is a partial Solar Eclipse occurring at 18 degrees Leo at 5:46 AM EDT. The Solar Eclipse happens at the New Moon.

Think about this as a New Moon on steroids. Remember, that each New Moon, we plant a seed. What do you want to begin now that will develop over the coming months? Consider what house Leo is in your chart. What seed do you want to plant in that area of your life?

Don’t neglect your New Moon ritual (although wait until Sunday) do give it added weight as whatever seed you plant will be activated for a much longer period of time. The Moon (once again) is VOC ALL DAY! Rest, don’t take any actions that you want to amount to anything as they will simply not develop in the way you would wish.

This is a complex day with Mercury and Mars still retrograde, the New Moon, our last Eclipse, and the Moon VOC*. Spend time developing your understanding of how to best use the expressive nature of Leo. Express generosity and open-hearted Love.

The Leo Moon is VOC* From 5:58 AM EDT until she enters Virgo at 11:59 PM EDT – All day! Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

 

A PRACTICAL FLOW

Sunday, August 12, 2018:

Just after midnight on Saturday, the Moon enters tidy, meticulous Virgo. This is a Sunday to settle in for practical activities. You may want to spend the day creating constructive plans for the upcoming week. Do the grocery shopping, laundry, and house cleaning.

A Grand Earth Trine is formed in the late afternoon from the Virgo Sun to Uranus in Taurus and Saturn in Capricorn. This is a very pragmatic day where all the preparations you do for the upcoming week will go smoothly and easily. Enjoy a flow of orderly functional work.

At the end of the day, Mars (still retrograde) backs into Capricorn, adding to the practical Earth centered vibe. Take advantage.

JUST A BIT LONGER

Monday, April 9, 2018:

You may find yourself breathing a sigh of relief on Monday morning with the Moon having left Capricorn behind to enter Aquarius. With Mars, Saturn, and Pluto all in Capricorn, it is a relief to have the Moon no longer highlighting that serious and sometimes restrictive area as she did throughout last weekend.

As the Sun is nearing the end of its time in Aries, it will engage in powerful conversations with both Pluto and Uranus over the coming days. The wee hours of Wednesday bring a square aspect with Pluto, you will be able to feel this for a day or two before and after the exact contact. Prepare to look deeply and face the challenges that have previously been hidden; don’t turn away from what you don’t want to see. Look it squarely in the eye and prepare to transform how you work with your inner demons.

The Moon is waning toward her New phase on Sunday. Throughout this week, consider those things that need to end in your life or circumstances. Sunday will also bring with it Mercury’s direct station. Hold on a bit longer as next week offers a new start and forward motion.

The Capricorn Moon is VOC* until she enters Aquarius at 2:51 AM EDT. When the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. You will likely be sleeping!

 

EQUALITY AND FREEDOM

Tuesday, April 10, 2018:

Tuesday’s Aquarius Moon may provide objectivity and open-minded detachment to allow you to remain emotionally removed from the intensity that is lurking just below the surface. Find unusual, like-minded, and interesting people to spend time together.

While emotions are linked to the Aquarius Moon, you may find yourself attracted to all that is unusual and your thoughts may turn to an instinctive desire to work with others to improve the conditions of all. In Aquarius, we look to the future with new and progressive ideas. Ideals of equality and freedom for all propel your thinking into new arenas.

As you head into the evening, you will have to face the darker side of the day. Something is being required of you, perhaps a change in direction, which you would rather avoid. Allow your mind to work with this in dreams while you sleep. Perhaps, clarity will come with Wednesday’s rising Sun.

 

SUPPORT IS AT HAND

Wednesday, April 11, 2018:

Wednesday brings with it a need to take action on a significant issue or situation. The annual cycle between the Sun and Pluto began on January 9, 2018, with the conjunction between them. This is a cycle of empowerment and intensification of the self, bringing destruction or the growth of your full potential.

Be fully conscious of exactly where you plant your feet on Wednesday. If powerful forces are working against you, look to your loved ones and friends for help and support. Thanks to a lovely trine aspect between loving Venus and assertive Mars, support is near at hand.

Focus your attention on that love and support understanding that you have that very same strength to supply to others. Your loved ones need you more than you may realize. Make yourself available.

At 2:39 PM EDT, the Moon enters sensitive, inspirational Pisces. Whatever the hard issues are, they look less stark and immovable as your emotions are blanketed with an overlay of a gentle, surreal mist. You may seek escape in many ways; avoid drugs and drink; meditation, poetry, music, or film will soothe you.

The Aquarius Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 10:56 AM EDT until she enters Pisces at 2:39 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

Are you concerned or unclear about your path ahead? Let Astrolore help you see your life and your path from the perspective of Universal Wisdom. Together, we will work with your individual horoscope to explore your hopes, dreams, goals, your current path, and the reality of your life purpose. Our conversation will offer you a profoundly renewed perspective on your life and circumstances. Make your appointment today! 

 

 

CREATIVE AND EROTIC PLEASURE

Thursday, April 12, 2018:

Thursday wins my vote for the high point of the week. The Moon continues through idealistic, compassionate Pisces offering you an inspired, dreamy view (or at least a softer one…) of your life. You are able to set aside the rougher issues and rest in gentle imagination. It feels good to find comfort behind those rose-colored glasses, at least for a time. Spend time in imaginative, peaceful quietude.

Compounding the intangible passivity of Thursday’s Pisces Moon, Venus forms a lovely sextile to Neptune (the planet that rules Pisces) at 12:26 PM EDT. The afternoon is colored with gentle pastels of love and romance. Sensuality is aroused and you are more available than usual for sensitive, creative and erotic pleasures.  Enjoy.

 

THE INTERCONNECTEDNESS OF ALL SOULS

Friday, April 13, 2018:

Friday continues with much the same sense of a dreamy, gentle interlude as Thursday. As we come into the dark phase of the Moon (New Moon on Sunday), and with the Moon in poetic Pisces, pay attention to your desire for quiet, internal contemplation.

Over the next few days, spend some time alone with your own sensitivity and depth. Engage with your spiritual practice and spend as much time as possible in nature or meditation. Engage your imagination to create intangible beauty through poetry or other art forms.

Open your heart to deep compassion; allow yourself to feel and soothe the suffering of yourself and others. Suffering is a human condition, it is never ours alone. When you feel it in your own heart, understand that to soothe it in another will soothe it in yourself. Pisces allows us to experience the interconnectedness of all souls.

The Moon enters Aries at 11:26 PM EDT. If you are up late, you may feel the flush of renewed energy otherwise Saturday morning will bring a revival of fortitude.

The Pisces Moon is VOC* (think of it as being adrift, without focus or connection) from 7:28 AM EDT until she enters Aries at 11:26 PM EDT. Remember, when the Moon is VOC*, there will be no result from anything that is begun. This is neutral; it is not good or bad, it simply suggests that whatever occurs will not have any significant future impact.

 

YOUR DAMAGED, BEAUTIFUL HEART

Saturday, April 14, 2018:

Saturday dawns with a surprising renewal of fearlessness, determination, and endurance. The Moon is now in dynamic, energetic Aries.

Sweetening the pot is an early morning, lovely sextile aspect from Jupiter to Pluto. This offers you an opportunity to renew your understanding of your own deep purpose. Consider the circumstances of the past that have brought you to the brink of despair; understand how those times of anguish offer a path toward empowerment and purpose. Release old pain and acknowledge empowerment and deep inner grace.

Another, clearly connected opportunity is offered on Saturday afternoon when assertive Mars forms a sextile to mystical Neptune. You may find that you are more appealing to others than usual or that you encounter others who are downright charismatic. You may simply feel more in tune with those around you. Spend time with others to enjoy lovely interpersonal connections.

Show your damaged beautiful heart and make deep, powerful connections with the equally damaged and beautiful hearts of others. Love with power and grace.

 

 

ARIES NEW MOON – MERCURY DIRECT

Sunday, April 15, 2018:

By the time you awake on Sunday morning, Mercury, the planet of thought processes, plans, and communications has stationed direct at 4° Aries. Everyone is happy about this news!!

 

Please give it a day or two to get up to speed before getting on with new projects, new communications, and new ideas to move forward.

The pushy Aries Moon forms a challenging aspect to Pluto on Sunday afternoon, exacerbating any interpersonal struggles. Do your best to curb tendencies to fly off the handle and this should pass without lasting difficulties.

At 9:58 PM EDT, the Sun joins the Moon at 26° Aries bringing us to the New Moon, However, it is best to do your New Moon ritual on Monday or even Tuesday, after the Moon has moved away from the ‘beams of the Sun’. The growth of the seed you plant will be supported by the wait.

Keep your ritual simple. With this New Moon occurring in Aries, the intention you set will be fiercely dynamic and will require independence and determination.

If you know what house in your birth chart holds Aries, it will help you clarify what intention is needed. For example, if Aries rules (is on the cusp of) your 1st house, set an intention to bring courage to your personality, in the 4th house, set an intention to bring energy and bravery to your family relationships or your home environment. If Aries is in the 7th house, perhaps you need to bring courage to your commitment to a partner, or in the 10th house, you may need to become a more energized leader within your work or business.

 

If you don’t know what house is involved, simply go with your intuition regarding the area of life that requires determination, leadership, and courage. Better yet, make an appointment for a consultation. Make your appointment today!  

~~New Moon Ritual ~~

Take a moment to write down the changes you wish to begin, create, or increase in the upcoming Moon Cycle.

Have two candles available; light a candle to represent yourself, as you are at the moment. Light another candle as an aspiration of what you intend to create. Each day, take a moment to focus on yourself as you light the first candle, then light the second candle, focusing on drawing to you what you want to create, bringing the two candles closer together. Do this each day until at the Full Moon, you will bring them fully together and acknowledge the result of what you have created.

The Aries New Moon suggests that you plant a seed of courage, determination, leadership, and independence.

 

 

The cosmos is a vast living body, of which we are still parts. The sun is a great heart whose tremors run through our smallest veins. The moon is a great nerve center from which we quiver forever. Who knows the power that Saturn has over us, or Venus? But it is a vital power, rippling exquisitely through us all the time.

~ D.H. Lawrence

Do you feel the relief now that Mars is moving forward? He will take a while to get up to speed but each day he moves a bit more quickly, encouraging us to take action in whatever direction has been blocked since mid-April.

There is also relief as we move farther from the second exact square between Saturn and Neptune. They will return to the challenging conversation between them in mid-September (oh, the politics!). For now, we drift in the space between, with a sense of the challenge between them but not so firmly embroiled in it.

If you haven’t yet read the story about my personal experience with the square between Saturn and Neptune alongside Mars retrograde, find the link here!

CANCER NEW MOON – FAMILIAL LOVE

Monday, July 4, 2016:

For many of you, the week begins with a holiday. This is a lovely day for enjoyment, pleasure, and particularly family gatherings. Although if you have concerns about power dynamics within your family, you may want to wait and meet up with them later in the afternoon.

The New Moon occurs at 7:02 AM EDT at 12° Cancer. With the Moon in Cancer,  we are particularly sensitive to matters of home, hearth, and family issues. At 12:40 PM EDT, the Moon faces off in an opposition to Pluto. Make it a point of not letting your fear of being ‘out of control’ trigger you into harsh reactions.

Once you get to 3:03 PM EDT, the rest of the day is smooth sailing. The sensitive, family oriented Cancer Moon forms lovely aspects with both Jupiter and Venus offering expansion to areas of love, pleasure, and tenderness.

Perhaps, the key earlier in the day is to relinquish our grip on control. If others want to take the reins, let them. Move into the afternoon and evening with an open heart and fully ready to engage and express Love.

 

EXPRESS YOUR INNER ARTIST

Tuesday, July 5, 2016:

Tuesday begins with Mercury, the planet of communication and perception, forming a free-flowing trine aspect to Neptune, the planet of imagination and compassion. This is a lovely day to fully express kindness, compassion, and love.

Ideas and thoughts may surface fully formed from your imagination. If you are a writer or a storyteller, be prepared for beautiful words and stories to be easily accessible.

At 12:27 PM EDT, the Moon enters playful Leo where he will brighten the next few days with colorful play. Spend the afternoon or evening expressing your inner artist through painting, performing, or simply playing like a child. Whatever you do, affirm that it be an authentic expression of your most joyful inner sense of self.

Anywhere you see others expressing their true self, do not hold back your full expression of powerful appreciation.  Give and receive love everywhere possible!

DESIRE MEETS COURAGE

Wednesday, July 6, 2016:

The lovely Leo Moon forms only one aspect today as she trines Saturn at 7:43 AM EDT. This stabilizes our emotions allowing us to fully embrace and experience the beautiful trine aspect between Venus and Mars at 4:16 PM EDT. This lovely sexy aspect can cause sparks to fly in only the best manner.

Your desire nature is powerful and there is nothing holding back your drive and courage to express that desire.  Connections formed and developed on Wednesday are powerfully supported by the conjunction between the Sun and Mercury occurring in Cancer at 11:23 PM EDT.

Go ahead, stay up late, and talk about it. Love is in the air and the conversation will be had. If you are spending the evening alone, make an effort to truly enjoy self-love or choose your communication method to express your affection to someone you love.

 

INTENSITY MAY CHANGE THE RULES

Thursday, July 7, 2016:

After such a lovely day on Wednesday, Thursday may come as a bit of a surprise. A whole series of challenging transits occur in the cosmos throughout the day.

At 7:54 AM EDT, Mercury opposes Pluto. If you find yourself challenged by powerful or disturbing thoughts, consider following the pathway they are asking you to step onto. This has the potential to lead to new perceptions or ways of viewing the world. Perhaps some information may come to light that could profoundly change our view.

At 10:24 AM EDT, with Venus square Uranus, we may be questioning all that love and affection we experienced on Wednesday.  The relationship that felt so lovely now offers a sense of discomfort and anxiety. Perhaps, you are afraid that you expressed too much vulnerability in that state of love. Don’t walk away or build walls. Remain open to things being different than you expected. Again, you have the opportunity to see a new view and you may be pleasantly surprised at what results if you can hold steady.

Finally, at 6:26 PM EDT, the Sun opposes Pluto insisting that we look at our deepest shadows, be willing to work deeply with them, and carefully consider how they must be exposed and integrated into the current conversation.

This may be a deeply challenging day. However, if you keep your heart and mind open and available, it could be a game changer. We are each responsible for how we manage the day.  You may find yourself on a new pathway leading to your own freedom.

When the Moon enters Virgo at 6:41 PM EDT, breathe deeply, settle down, and find a way to be of service to those around you. Remember, we each face these challenges together; the space between us is so much less than we think. Be of service to others will stabilize you into an evening that will reflect and honor the hard work you have done throughout the day.

You probably didn’t get much sleep on Wednesday night and with the challenges of this day please make it a point to go to sleep early on Thursday.

 

TRY HUMOR

Friday, July 8, 2016:

I hope you took my advice and got a good night’s sleep Thursday night.  Friday morning begins on a much more positive note. At 5:05 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Jupiter offering expansion and even humor to our communications.

Whatever occurred on Thursday has enabled new conversations to be had. These conversations will support the expansion of understanding and clarity. Perhaps, you have found a new way to talk about whatever caused the problems on Thursday.

Everyone is more available to actually listen with an open heart and mind. Go ahead; say what needs to be said. It is possible that there could be some hurt feelings later in the afternoon. They won’t last long as if you are able to let the issue slide off your back. All in all, there is more space for listening and understanding; if we are lucky by evening we may stumble into compassion.

PROJECT OR SERVICE

Saturday, July 9, 2016:

On Saturday, the Virgo Moon is extremely busy making lovely aspects to Pluto, Sun, Jupiter, Mercury, Mars, and Venus. This could be a day of high productivity.  However, this is not the time to work alone or to work in one singular environment. With so much activity, you want the involvement of others and possibly moving from place to place.

Consider gathering friends or family to work on a project together. House projects, gardening, or craft projects are simply ideas to get you thinking. It may be a beautiful summer day but this is not a day to being lazy or selfish.

You will end the day with far more joy if you incorporate an element of accomplishment and service to your efforts.

 

A LOVELY DAY

Sunday, July 10, 2016:

Sunday begins with the Moon in Libra and the Sun sextile Jupiter.  This offers not only diplomacy and pleasure, but also warmth, humor, and general ‘feel good’ energy.

How about heading to brunch with your closest family or friends?  Any activity that could start the day on a really positive note is the very thing to do.

If you’re reading this on the blog early in the week, make sure you make a plan for Sunday morning. If you’re reading this Sunday morning, get on the phone and call your friends right away. Don’t waste this lovely day.

When Mercury trine Mars at 10:00 PM EDT, you find yourself easily able to communicate whatever may be necessary to push forward into the coming week. Did you forget a proposal you were supposed to write for work on Monday? Don’t worry too much about it, as it should be easy to put together before bed.

We can anticipate a smoother journey through this week then last week.

The Aries New Moon on April 7th was an intense moment in time.  Whatever you began at that New Moon continues to profoundly impact your path forward.

The urgency for change will move us all forward, personally, communally, and globally.

Take every moment of this precious life seriously even as you seek pleasure and play.

CURIOSITY AND OPEN PERSPECTIVES

Monday, April 11, 2016:

Following the intensity of the past week, you may encounter a lingering sense of anxiety making it difficult to settle into normal workday routines.  I suppose that depends on what your normal workday routines consist of!

A great use of the energy Monday morning and into mid-afternoon would be to engage in all kinds of intellectual curiosity or exploration.  You may have the ability to see situations from a more diverse and unusual perspective as the Gemini Moon forms a sextile aspect to both Uranus and the Sun.

If possible, go ahead and leave work early.  Following a sextile to the Aries Sun, at 2:56 PM EDT the Gemini Moon will be VOC* until early Tuesday morning.  This is a time to spend without expectation of accomplishment.

Spend the late afternoon and evening with casual acquaintances and fair weather friends.  This is not an evening for deep connections or intellectual conversations but a time for witty banter and fun lighthearted interactions.  We all live in circumstances that can be seen from many perspectives.

This evening allow yourself to leave what is challenging and difficult behind and focus on simple exploration and fun.

 

BOUNDLESS BEAUTY & LOVE

Tuesday, April 12, 2016:

Tuesday begins with the Moon in nostalgic, family-oriented Cancer.  While the Moon is in Cancer, we tend to feel deeply sensitive, moody, and drawn to our memories of the past.

At 5:39 AM EDT, Mercury sextile Neptune suggests a pleasant time to explore creativity, music, film, or higher spiritual states.  Consider how your mind opens to the flow of imagination or inspiration.

Are you exploring the benefits of a meditation or other spiritual practice?  Is your spiritual practice opening your mind in ways that seem nearly intangible?  Do you find yourself working with deep imagination?  Do you feel the urge to write poetry?

Take some time to consider these possibilities.  If you are drawn to drugs, alcohol, or other methods of escape, turn your attention to music, poetry, or meditation.

At 3:16 PM EDT, Venus forms a trine aspect to Mars.  Whatever value – love or beauty-  that began to develop in November of 2015 is now well on its way to full illumination which will present with clarity in late May.  This lovely free flow of energy created by the trine between the planet of love and beauty (Venus) and the planet of assertive action (Mars) allows you to bring courage and action to all that you long for.

Everything seems possible in love and money.  Enjoy the sense of abundance.

One more thing: Happy Birthday to my son Elliot’s dad, John Lajza! J

RELIEF OF KINDNESS

Wednesday, April 13, 2016:

The Cancer Moon continues to hold us in its grasp throughout the day on Wednesday.  As she makes challenging contact with confrontational Pluto and unpredictable Uranus, there is a challenging twist added to an already emotionally touchy day.

It will be far too easy to take situations out of context and to proceed to take them very personally.  Be aware of the tendency to go on the defense without realizing that the situation may have very little to do with you.  Get out of your own way and stay out of the way of others.

This is a good day to keep your own company and find a way to see yourself and others more objectively.

The First Quarter Moon occurs just at midnight, impacting Wednesday night and Thursday.  Consider what began at the New Moon last Thursday (April 7th) and be sure to take some action to move that situation forward.  Look for the place of stress and you will know the action needed that will bring the situation to full illumination at the Full Moon next week.

The best way to deal with a day of this type of stress is to offer kindness to others. Remember that everyone around you is also dealing with this level of agitation and stress.  Help make it easier for others and it will automatically make it easier for you.

 

STABILIZING THOUGHTS

Thursday, April 14, 2016:

The basic energy we awake with on Thursday is suggested by the square aspect between the Sun (Aries) and the Moon (Cancer).  This is the First Quarter Square of the lunar cycle.  You may feel the need to push yourself to accomplish something significant that is a part of an ongoing project.

At 9:53 AM EDT, the Moon enters the playful, regal sign of Leo.  You may feel relief as you are able to let go of the anxiety, stress, and emotional sensitivity of the past few days.

At 11:27 AM EDT, Mercury in Taurus trine Jupiter in Virgo.  This aspect will serve us well as our minds are able to see a new perspective, the bright side that we really need right now.

This aspect offers stability to your thoughts and your ability to make decisions.  The cycle between Mercury and Jupiter is about the expansion of our ideas, developing faith and belief in the goodness of life, and helping us open to optimism.

This cycle began in early August 2015 challenged us strongly in the first days of December.  Now, we are able to see the benefits and the lighter touch we have developed within our thinking.

 

BRING OR OFFER PLEASURE

Friday, April 15, 2016:

As the Moon moves through Leo on Friday, she forms a Grand Trine with Mars in Sagittarius, Venus in Aries, and Saturn in Sagittarius.  Your energetic body is alive and wants to fully express itself through dance, performance, or play.

The only glitch in the day is Moon square Mercury in the mid-afternoon, you may struggle to find concepts or words that allow you to express your true generosity of spirit and your ability to enliven others and bring delight to the table.  Lacking the ability to articulate all of this does not slow you down in finding other methods of expression.

Indeed, we have left the days of childhood behind.  That is no reason to neglect the creativity, imagination, and play of childhood.  Allow that sense of wonder to flare up again within your soul.

Nurture creativity and joy in every person you meet on Friday and Saturday.  Offer bottles of soap bubbles or other childlike toys to children and adults alike.

Seriously!  Imagine!  You will be surprised at the delight you can create, so simply, in the lives of others.

Much like a forgotten fire, your childhood can flare up again within you.  Encourage that ability now.  Allow yourself to seek pleasure and to offer that pleasure to others.

LIVE AS A CHILD

Saturday, April 16, 2016:

On Saturday, the Leo Moon forms a trine aspect to both Uranus and the Sun offering you the support and excitement you need to express your most authentic self without apology.  Pay attention and you will see that others are also expressing themselves deeply.  Make it a point to acknowledge and appreciate that expression in others.

Expect to encounter a delightful surprise, an unexpected thought, or an unusual communication that will shift your day to pleasure.

Leo is the sign of childlike playfulness.  Consider what it is that allows children to experience joy more simply than adults.  Children live in the present without concerns about money, productivity, or being cool.  They have no limits on their imagination, and they create and play with abandon.  Children are endlessly curious and love to perform without self-consciousness.

Live as a child on Saturday.  Remember, children don’t sleep late, so get up and enjoy the precious morning hours!

At 7:23PM EDT, the Moon enters Virgo, releasing the time of playful expression.  You may want to stay home, talk with close friends, or organize your closets on Saturday evening.  Playtime this weekend is clearly Friday, not Saturday night!

 

ASSERTIVENESS AND DRIVE

Sunday, April 17, 2016:

You may wake up with an intense focus on a subject that has deeply embedded itself within your mind since December 2015.  Your thinking is focused and powerful.  If you have a communication that must be delivered, this would be a good morning to proceed with that.  It will be easier to communicate and to be understood than you may expect.  This is a significant time for study, deep understanding, and communication on profoundly significant issues.

At 8:14 AM EDT, Mars turns retrograde at 8 degrees Sagittarius.  Mars will remain retrograde until June 29th when he will turn direct at 23 degrees Scorpio.  It is important to consider where this is occurring in your chart and your life.

During this time, we must look closely and honestly at our actions.  Are you concerned with how you are expressing your sexuality, assertiveness, and the manner with which you take direct action in your life?  These are issues that you will be called to consider over the coming 10 weeks.  Do your actions reflect your deepest values and beliefs?  Are you using your sexual energy and assertive strength to push forward in a way that truly reflects what is important to you?

This contemplation is not an easy one for many of us.  We tend to take action in these areas automatically.  It is important to look at your deepest integrity regarding your sexuality.

This would be a great time to have a consultation.  There is much to talk about that will be reflected in how this plays out in your individual chart.  You have 10 weeks to look carefully, get honest with yourself, and find ways to move forward with more clarity on your drive and sexuality.  Contact me for an appointment.

* In these weekly reports, I am exploring the major aspects formed by transits between the planets.  I do not consider every aspect that the Moon makes each day as they can be numerous and are often fleeting moods.  I will consider the final major aspect formed by the Moon prior to its VOC* time, as that aspect holds its influence throughout the VOC*.

* The aspects under consideration: conjunctions, sextiles, squares, trines, and oppositions.
* The planets I work with: Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto.

Are you at a crossroad in your life? Are your circumstances other than what you expected?

We can meet for an individual consultations (Burlington, Vermont), by telephone, or on SKYPE!

Life Transitions Require New Perspectives!

It is my goal to empower you in the exploration of the past, present and future of your life.

Let's talk. There is so much to learn and understand.
